Break Out of Traditional Creative Boxes and into Bold Color Expression.

Bold Color Online Art Class, Bold School

Charla and her team have created a virtual school with all of the benefits of an in-person art school,

but where I can proceed at my own pace and repeat classes if I wish. I don't think there is anything missing from Bold School that one could have at an actual institution - except maybe the traffic and the commute!!! I absolutely love it!!"

 - Jacqui

Thank you all so very much. I watch your classes over and over.

They keep my hope of creating alive and refreshed. 

I can’t thank you enough!"

Art IS exciting...and it IS a LIFE LONG journey. It does not happen over months or years.

Such a great reminder. Thank you for your support and words.

You have such a great message.
You make me smile!"

 - Nansea

Thank you Charla.

Your passion for your art is so infectious, it brought me to tears.

For too many years I have dabbled in my art, too fearful to really be vulnerable and find my message or my unique style.
As a young person, I too was told that you couldn't make a living out of art and to get a real job. And so I did but art crept its way in as I became an art teacher. Teaching art in school is one thing, discovering my own art is another.

Now is the time to open up this gift God has given me and share it with the world.

Thank you again. ❤"

I'm proud to be a student with Bold School.

It's been an amazing journey.

I finally found realism blended with my hyper color style. It's been amazing"

- Amanda

I'm a completely self-taught painter. I've taken all sorts of online courses and use acrylic, oil and oil pastels for said paintings...I just couldn't find the right style that felt like 'me'.

I took a gamble that Bold was where I wanted to go. It was a correct choice.

Not only has the bold color aspect been what I was missing, but the emphasis on VALUE...

...was the key I needed.

The. Key! To the entire thing. Your Bootcamp course has done it. It's created the perfect foundation for me for pursuing this style. I'll be able to make this style my own as I open up more and get far looser.
